Leaf & Love Inc. has squeezed new life into a traditional kid¹s beverage with the first all-natural, zero-sugar, organic lemonade “juice box.”
The love affair with lemonade may be as American as apple pie. What often starts with children setting up summertime lemonade stands develops into a lifelong appreciation of this sweet and tangy treat. However, if you remove the lemon flavor, yellow food coloring, artificial sweeteners and water from traditional lemonade products, what is left is a cup halfway filled with sugar or corn syrup.
Leaf & Love was created when two moms-on-a-mission and friends since childhood, Amy DiBianca and Sara Williams-Curran, took to their kitchens to develop a delicious zero-sugar alternative to the current array of high-sugar, empty calorie children¹s beverages. This endeavor was largely inspired by Sara¹s five-year-old daughter¹s diagnosis with Type 1 diabetes, and by Amy¹s perpetual search for wholesome and delicious nutrition for her four-year-old son. After a tireless search, they found the beverage’s “sweet spot” by combining the highest quality and best tasting organic stevia to naturally sweeten their lemonade. Their recipe quickly became a hit in their communities. Soon, Amy and Sara joined forces to bring a better beverage to families everywhere. Leaf & Love Organic Lemonade offers the perfect balance of sweet and sensible in every box.
Made with love in California using just a handful of ingredients, including 100% USDA organic lemon juice, organic lemon juice concentrate and organic stevia, Leaf & Love Organic Lemonade delivers all the flavor of a sweet and tangy lemonade with the added benefits of being zero-sugar and providing 15% of the daily recommended amount of Vitamin C. The lemonade is also non-GMO, vegan, gluten-free and fits within the American Heart Association’s recommended nutritional guidelines of only 10 to 12 daily grams of added sugar for kids.
Leaf & Love Organic Lemonade is sold as a case of 4×8 packs (32 juice boxes) on Amazon for $28.96 and will be available at select retail locations soon. The company has also launched an online campaign Our Kids Are Sweet Enough, encouraging parents to learn more about sugar alternatives, which can be found at www.leafandlove.com and www.facebook.com/leafandlove.
About Leaf & Love
The Leaf & Love Organic Lemonade mission is to provide families with a delicious alternative to the current array of high sugar children¹s food and beverages. By putting only the highest quality ingredients into our zero-sugar USDA organic products, the company is committed to becoming a household name in healthier choices for children with the perfect balance of sweet and sensible lemonade. Leaf & Love Inc. started in 2013 when life-long friends Sara Williams-Curran and Amy DiBianca joined forces. They were united by a passion for a natural and healthy lifestyle, further fueled when Sara’s daughter received a shocking diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes. Sara, a celebrated school teacher, and Amy, a veteran television actress, realized there was a tremendous need for all-natural and organic kid’s beverages that had zero sugar and did not contain artificial sweeteners or chemicals. Their quest for wholesome and delicious nutrition for their children continues to inspire new kitchen creations for future products.
